    Steve:
    Cool take at a relaxed tempo and a good combo going on...You're making the changes really clear overall with a clean reading on the melody.

    My biggest critique is that the phrasing is kind of like a run-on sentence at times. There are phrases but with practically no pause between to differentiate the previous phrase from the next.

    Nice work!

    Here is my attempt on medium up tempo version... Some shaky parts here and there, should go practice little bit I guess.

    Recorded this during a lesson today- this student is in 11th grade and I think he sounds pretty good! He solos first, then me, then 8s, 4s, then a chorus together. Hope you dig it!

    Since this is between school years it depends whether he's just finished or is just entering 11th grade. Assuming a "normal" schedule, somewhere between 15 and 17 years old.

    Maybe, maybe not- either way you're different people with different lives and goals- don't worry about who's better or not! (and thanks btw)

    Great playing for someone so young; hope we'll get to hear more of his progress!

    Dave,

    That’s a very talented student. At 17 he’s an incredible player. The only critique I can offer is I think at times it’s a bit too much of the triplets. Otherwise, assuming this (being a jazz musician) is what he wants he has a fantastic start.

    Hello TOTM'ers

    I haven't posted in quite a while but was listening to some tracks from this and last month (Confirmation) and wanted to post.

    Here's two different takes on:

    Have You Met Mr Jones: (Latin Version via JA Band)
    https://soundcloud.com/user-402472099/ste-035-01

    Have You Met Mr Jones: (Open 2 Feel via iRealBook)
    https://soundcloud.com/user-40247209...umet-open2feel

    Hopefully these work....
    Glad to see TOTM is still rolling...
    Cheers, Paul H
